I am travelling to attend the bridal shower of a college roommate whom I haven’t seen in a very long time. I only had one bridal shower of my own and it was thrown by my mother and her older friends, so I don’t have a good reference point for….
what I should wear? How dressed up to get to be safe, because I don’t want to overshadow the bride.
what I should bring? The shower is being hosted by relatives of hers as she’s flying in (don’t know the relatives nor how they are related), but is it correct to bring something other than myself and my gift?
what I should give? Should I choose something off of her registry or should I pick out something for the two of them? Or maybe something for her? Not sure!
Now that I’m the one ATTENDING the parties instead of PLANNING the parties – I’m lost! 🙂 Thanks bees!

Just yourself and a gift is perfectly fine. I would get something off the registry.. just pick anything in your price range.. she registered for it so she’ll like it! I always wear a dress to a shower. This time of year just a cute casual sun dress should do the trick.

I usually use business casual as a rule for most showers. If it’s somewhere fancier like a restaurant or a country club, I usually go with a dress…but if it’s being hosted at someone’s house, I think the business casual usually works out the best for me.
I would get her something off of her registry for both of them. If you’re unsure of what to get or if you’re not a fan of anything on her registry, a gift card for her to purchase what she wants is always nice too.
Good luck, and enjoy yourself!

Well I would look at where it is being thrown at and go from there. I have always worn summer dresses to most bridal showers I’ve been too. But for us it is not some big elaborate formal thing. You only need to bring the gift. The Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man or family should be taking care of food etc. I would go off the registry, that is what they are for.

I would wear a cute dress or dress pants with a nice top. You can get a gift off her registry which is most common. You dont need to bring anything other than yourself and a gift 🙂
